Songwriting duo Kaushik-Guddu talk about their latest ‘Mere Yaara’ from Sooryavanshi | Odisha News | Latest Odisha News
The 2021 hit film “Sooryavanshi” won hearts. In the melodious vocals of Arijit Singh and Neeti Mohan, the film’s song “Mere Yaara” has actors Akshay Kumar and Katrina Kaif recounting it. In a conversation with us, songwriting duo Kaushik-Guddu said, “When we received Azeem Dayani’s briefing on ‘Mere Yaara’, it brought about the belief that the song should be bigger. than nature. It required an excellent composition and melody that would put the song on everyone’s lips. The requirement called for a romantic song centered on the heroes. When we started making the song, we thought about how to make it a little different from most songs today. Then we brought sarangi (folk instrument). We went through trial and error a few times during the creation of the song. With gradual development, we took about 8-9 months to make this song. Even though it was a slow development, it was strong.
“When we heard that Akshay Kumar and Katrina Kaif were going to star in the song, we thought they were the appropriate faces for ‘Mere Yaara’,” they add.
Kaushik-Guddu, who share the cousins bond, have proven their prowess in hit songs like ‘Sajan Bade Senti’ (‘Badhai Ho’), ‘Loveyatri Title Track’ (‘Loveyatri’), ‘Main Hoon Saath Tere’ (‘Shaadi Mein Zaroor Aana’), ‘Tera hoke Rahoon’ (‘Behen hogi teri’).
Music supervisor Azeem Dayani also said of “Mere Yaara”, “The song is one of a kind among the romantic song charts.”

Kaushik-Guddu as a contemporary composer, tries music with something new every time by experimenting with different dimensions. The technology helps spruce up the track, but it doesn’t make singing any easier than it was years ago, they say. Current music platforms promote independent music, but all revolve around public acceptance.
The duo express: “It was a great experience working with Arijit Singh. As we know, Arijit does his best in the song he sings. Likewise, he did justice to Mere Yaara ‘with her soulful voice. We look forward to working on many more projects with Arijit in the future.
